Eat West Coast is everything food on the west coast of Vancouver Island. We want a region where food is celebrated, abundant, and integral to the culture, health, economy, and community well-being for all residents. Eat West Coast is a strategy of the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust. We are hub for food security and healthy communities programs and activity throughout the Clayoquot Sound Biosphere Reserve region. We are supported in part by Island Health’s Community Food Action Initiative. Our communities include Macoah, Hitacu, Ucluelet, Esowista/Ty-Histanis, Tofino, Opitsaht, Ahousaht and Hot Springs Cove.
The Cowichan Incubator Seed Farm is the first seed training farm to be launched in Canada. Based on the successful ‘Incubator Farm’ model that has been implemented in numerous places to train new farmers, the Cowichan Incubator Seed Farm (CISF) will be the first to focus specifically on training new seed farmers.
The Community Links Programs, funded by Community Living BC, are designed to provide support to adults living with developmental disabilities in the Mount Waddington Regional District. Our programs, including Semi-Independent Living, Community Inclusion, and Supported Employment, provide opportunities to develop daily living skills, employment skills, as well as access to recreational and leisure activities.
